What’s Pickleball? Some have described Pickleball as a cross between tennis and racquetball, Ping-Pong and badminton. It’s played on a court less than a third the size of a tennis court… instead of racquets, players use paddles to hit a softball size wiffle ball.
The game was created in 1965 and is now played in all 50 states. It is being touted as a sport for all ages, and an excellent gateway sport for youth. It’s a quick learn court game, generally with longer rallies than tennis or racquetball. Considered a team sport activity, Pickleball has less joint/muscle trauma.
The game is generally played as doubles and can accommodate eight people in play within the size of a single tennis court.
